Drones in the USA – level 3

01-05-2019 15:00

In the USA, the Federal Aviation Administration (which is a governmental body with powers to regulate all aspects of civil aviation) approved air carrier certification for Alphabet’s drone delivery service.

The approval is important to the company and for the industry as a whole.

Alphabet is Google’s parent company, which has been testing drone delivery services in Australia where it has carried out over ’70,000 test flights, and more than 3,000 deliveries’. With the FAA’s approval, it says that it will now start testing in southwest Virginia over the next several months.

Difficult words: aviation (related to flying), body (an organisation, a big part of something bigger), approve (say that something can happen).
